Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a BA in elementary education. I was certified in Illinois and my certification was for grades 1-8. I have also been certified in Florida and MI for teaching preschool. Since earning these certifications I have taught preschool through high school subjects.

Reading and Math readiness are the most important areas of instruction for the preschooler. Kindergarteners begin the real work of reading and arithmetic while also continuing readiness activities. A firm foundation will ensure success in other subjects as well.

Children learn best when they are interested so I try to keep lessons moving and rotate activities and games frequently to keep interest high. I tailor lessons to the specific needs of the child to maximize the time we spend in tutoring.

I enjoy working will all elementary grades. I specialize in helping with homework, developing study skills and bringing skills up to par in reading and math.

Elementary Math

I currently have 3 other elementary math students that see me weekly for tutoring. I have taken and passed the WyzAnt test for elementary math and I have a BA in education.

ESL/ESOL

I have a BA in Education and have tutored privately and taught in the classroom. My ESL experience ranges from teaching basic English to those with little or no English to coaching those with workable English in the area of job and college applications.

I formerly tutored with Club Z in the Brighton area and had ESL experience while working with them.

Reading

I hope to work closely with the teachers at your child's school to develop a tutoring plan that will enhance learning. I utilize a variety of methods in an effort to meet your child's specific needs.

Study Skills

I have a BA in Education and have been certified in Illinois and Fl.I have tutored study skills for over 20 years in the classroom and privately.

I will assess your student to determine his or her needs before beginning an individualized program. Study skills improve through growth in attitude, improved organization, and understanding learning styles.
